of course. so trying to -- china is a much interest in canadian energy and natural resources. we are very much interested in building trust, strategic trust and cooperation with china. and from enable perspective, of course, i'll give you one sort of anecdote. you were referring to this the islands, two months ago i attended the western pacific naval symposium hosted -- and have the opportunity to sit between the deputy commander of the people's liberation army navy, and the commander of the ambassadors japanese maritime self-defense force, a euphemism for the japanese navy. it was at a time when the island was leading on cnn and bbc. i thought as i was sitting between two them there's an opportunity for a canadian to do something extraordinary from an naval diplomatic perspective and put this thing to bed. [laughter] >> how did that go? >> not too well, not too well. [laughter] which is my point. i spoke with the chinese admirals interpreter. i spoke with admiral commander in english, a great conversation. but never was the bridge build or even considered. and i think one of the key issu
and this brings back sweet memories of when china was very isolated during the cold war. in the end, there's a whole new generation of people who have been much more sophisticated understanding, but that i would say it's a very strong autonomic response to the united states beefing up its forces in australia and then they wake up one morning and burma has flipped on them. it was eternal in terms of their faithful allies. these things caused a lot of consternation. so the old fear of diagnostically speaking in china is to fear with sand and travel without. these things happening around them excite them. >> how much does it add to that anxiety is that all? >> is the most problematic relationship now in japan and this is not good. i have to say i think japan probably hasn't played this as well as it might have, but i think on the other hand it would be fair to say also that it serves china's purposes to have something happening outside his orders which can rally people at home. there's a lot of complex things going on in each of these reactions to foreign movements outside. >> which ma
nations need to isolate the president and su. >> we have two ways -- putting pressure on russia, china and iran to stop supporting this regime, and then this would be useful, or supporting militarily the opposition or the interfering by the nato to make free zone and no-fly zone. >> reporter: russia and china have repeatedly vetoed u.n. security council resolutions on imposing sanctions against syria. without their support, the international efforts can only put limited pressure on president assad. diplomats here are still hoping their efforts will help in some part to end the conflict in syria. however, after 20 months of violence, they've learned getting peace will take time. akira saheki, nhk world, tokyo. >>> satellite images show north korea could be preparing to launch another rocket. researchers at johns hopkins university in the united states say they have observed the first two stages of what appears to be a long-range missile. these images of the launch site in tongchang-ri on the west coast of north korea were captured on monday. researchers say they show trailers carrying t
, china, egypt, venezuela and even a few more. but i'm looking out of the book and what i set out to do is look at the struggle between democrats and dictators. which you find this is a wonderful political science literature out there on the topic. but in fact, it's actually lived by people in the very concrete way on a day-to-day basis. just a couple hours before he came over here this morning, many people are profiled in russia were just arrested. this is a fluid stream of income late and i wanted to look at how these two sides are facing off against each other. one of the things i don't think we often realize is the battle between democracies and dictatorships going on today as opposed to the not so distant past is actually almost always die struggle between individuals. and so why did i choose the countries i chose? i chose them because these are some of the most sophisticated regimes. what you find as it's actually, i think you could guess this from 20 above and if you are in anyway following events. it's a very hard time to be a dictator. it's very difficult. this is not an easy g
. how we really globalize. globalization is a big company game. i can go to china and not be afraid. going to africa and compete with the chinese. i can go to russia and say i can manage the risk-reward equation. so that's where a lot of new consumers are and i would say that is a core competency of a multibusiness big company like g.e. so i'd say it's more than those two but those two are important. >> rose: you once said to me tell me what the global economy will look like and the domestic economy will look like and i can can tell you what g.e. will do. >> uh-huh. >> rose: look ahead to the global economy today and tell me how you see it, where it's going and pra what are the prospects for growth? >> i think the world always revolves around a couple fundamentals. one is where are the people? demographics rule. at times when the u.s. grew the fastest was times when the population was also growing the fastest. so the fact there that there's a billion new consumers joining the middle-class in the next five or ten years, you bet be with them. the second is the cost of materials so bas

with china. unrest has continued, despite ongoing peace talks with separatist rebels. blocker is -- bloggers in china will no longer be able to comment anonymously. post maybe easily deleted, and information may be sent to authorities. more from hong kong. >> 500 million and growing. the sheer number of internet users and the kind of information they share has long been a source of anxiety for chinese authorities. new measures mean bloggers will have to provide their real names. service providers are required to take down any posts that break the law, and report them to the authorities. the internet has been responsible for uncovering scandals involving corrupt local officials. the government said it wants to encourage more of this, but it seems only up to a point. >> activities on the internet that have seriously infringed on legal rights of the general public have threatened a state, leading to demands from various parts of society to strengthen regulation of the internet. >> chinese internet users have been the first to criticize the new rules. >> since the internet came into china, the g

india and china to develop into a completely distinct world civilizations without having much to do with each other for long-term history. let's take that image that you offered of america, this amazingly simple geographic place with all of these natural harbors and rivers that run the right way but that was true for thousands of years and didn't leave to the development to rate civilization and european civilization and began to make powerful use of those the geographical advantages are obvious, so help us think about why it's geography that we should focus on as opposed to the cultural or civilization will aspect. >> that was due to the development of the failing chips which enable the croswell landed voyages, so that development of technology while it is short in distance it did not negate, it made it more important because it opened up a whole new geography and the world trade system cultural and economics flow from the geography because what is culture? it is the accumulated experience of a specific people on may specifically and skate over hundreds of thousands of years that l

in india and china that all investors need to be aware of is the fact that corporate debt is now really building up to almost unhealthy levels. and i would keep an eye on where corporate debt levels are in companies investing in. >> when i was a corporate analyst in india tracking markets, technology was considered the engine of growth for the country and one of the bright spots for the market. is technology still one of the areas you are tell clients to invest in in india, or what are the sectors you're looking at? >> i think there's two sectors whether you look at india, china, or asia. there's two sectors we like. it's technology, as you said. i think that's one that -- it's a bright gem. you know, it went from, in india, from a bpo outsourcing business and has grown to an innovation business where brands are being developed and real technological gains are being had. the other sector we like is health care. the demand for health care in these markets is just continuing to grow steadily. obviously people are having longer lives, having more disposable income for health care and treat
a very tiny amount and of course, what you really have to remember, you're never going to get china or india on board. so essentially, it's going to have a very, very small effect. it's not the solution to climate change. >> would you say that the co 2 emissions are causing temperatures globally to rise. >> yes. >> and that's accurate? >> and in the long run, we do need to cut back on carbon emissions, but the way that we're trying right now, the way that we're trying in doha and many international areas is not working and we're essentially making up these promises, but what are we doing? we're sending productions to china and india, so essentially we're putting out more co 2, but not in our home countries. stuart: will you hold on a second, i've got breaking news, we'll come back to you. and ford sales up 6%, the stock is up about 2% now, 11.69. earlier chrysler reported a 14% sales increase. back to bjorn lundberg, the doha climate change conference from the united nations still going on. what do you expect to come out of it. >> unfortunately, virtually nothing. look, we've been h
china, who are looking to part with lots of cash. >> he spent years living in china. he understands the language as well as the mentality of the chinese. for the past few months, he has been a sales consultant at frankfurt international airport where he assist chinese customers, for example, with the purchase of a camera. few speak english, although this customer is an exception. >> i am a part-time photographer. i use a cannot -- canon and nikon. >> many passengers arrive at the airport several hours before their flights and do a lot of shopping, but they often struggle with the language. his task is to act as an intermediary between shoppers and sales personnel. >> some are very surprised at first. they are not used to a westerner speaking chinese at the airport, but they are delighted. many want to browse on their own, first. the chinese have very different taste. >> weather it is luxury goods or everyday products, the chinese are interested in almost everything. they especially like the duty- free stores. this customer says she bought some cosmetics and jewelry. she says everyth
, with russia and china, containment when it came to russia was countering their expansive capabilities. >> rose: right. >> our own -- when it came to their nuclear capability we were talking about deterrence. >> rose: right. >> and so i think first we want to contain iranian influence in the region, but i think the question that people are -- that what the president is really addressing is, or would we be content with deterrence? >> right. >> and there i think the difference in the ayatollahs and their religious, their they cratic approach to the world, their threats to destroy israel make them a more worrisome, significantly more worrisome possess sorry of nuclear weapons than other nuclear states. >> rose: because they have a different decision al type structure. >> yes. >> rose: from russia, and the soviet union from going into europe once again, deterrence is mutually assured destruction. and so then, does the question of value and life, different because of a culture that can produce suicide bombers mean that there -- means that will not work in the end or do you say no nationable and the

wind and solar makes no sense. also five years ago we thought that china and india and other emerging economies might sign onto emissions reductions. and, therefore, that if we reduced e many uses -- emissions, perhaps global temperatures would be reduced. and i don't take a position on whether manmade emissions cause global warming or not, but if we are reducing our emissions and china and india which make up 37% of the world's population are not doing so, we're not going to have any effect on global temperatures. and in the first chapter of the book, i talk about geoengineering solutions that nobel prides-winning scientist paul krugman thinks can reduce global temperatures if we just do it on our own such as spraying clouds with water or painting roofs white to reflect the sun's rays. what we're doing with the $12 billion that we're spending on alternative energy is pushing people into cars they don't want to buy, we're raising electricity costs, we are pushing -- we are getting rid of incandescent lightbulbs in favor of flour rest sent lightbulbs. and the cost of this falls disprop

in china that that without any warning it shatters. this is in shanghai. it's very popular at the mall here. it's got turtles and sharks and 33 tons of glass and water all over the place. amazingly nobody was killed but 16 were hurt. tell us a little bit about why you suppose this happened. does this have anything to do with temperature or how do people explain it? >> i'll never look at an aquarium the same again. this was a ten-inch piece of plate glass that exploded literally. people said there was a crack. all of a sudden after the crash the water rushed out and it sounded like an explosion. what investigators now believe happened here is the tank had very warm water in it. the outside temperature, although this is in a mall, this was the outside-facing glass. you can see there are trees there. this was in the cold part of the mall, kind of the outside exposure. temperatures got down into the 20s. not like i had never gotten into the 20s before but this here with the warm on the one side, the water, the cold on the other side, they believe a fault in the glass, a scratch, obviously somet
of the sea travel in and out of the port and any part for the missiles would have come through china which is north korea's only friend and, then, the voice of america reported this week that an iranian team had been seen in north korea in recent days and there is some presumption that, in fact, iranians may have helped them. this is the first successful long-range rocket this year. earlier in april it was not successful. certainly, all eyes are on iran in weres of the role it my have played. >>shepard: thank you. we have used a carrot and stick approach with north korea over the years. it doesn't really seem to have made were of a difference. we will look at the diplomatic efforts with the former away bill richardson who has lots of experience dealing with north korea. and 100 countries throwing their support behind the syrian rebels . so, this board gives me rates for progressive direct and other car insurance companies? yes. but you're progressive, and they're them. yes. but they're here. yes. are you...? there? yes. no. are you them? i'm me. but those rates are for... them. so t
five, china, is china slowing or leading the world? we do know that china will be the biggest economy in the world by 2020, for sure, by 2030. china also getting more than a few mentions during the presidential campaign's probably because it is pretty clear, china is both a competitor and a partner. >> number four, europe, the european union was fractured by debt and the plans to fix it. that saga is far from over. >>> number three, the housing market, finally, finally bottomed out. the combination of home prices and continued mortgage rates set off a building and buying spree. well-he well-heeled investors began to buy entire neighborhoods. and homeowners got more with a hefty down payment. >> and cnn predicts that barack obama will be reelected president of the united states. >> the election, more than just about obama and romney, more about socialism, and capitalism and spending, about the role government should have in your life. >> number one is the fiscal cliff. lawmakers saw it coming, but didn't bother to pay any attention to it until after the election. had they put politics
for the group. he was promoted second-in-command earlier this year. >>> back to the economy now, china apparently going on an american spending spree. a chinese company agreed to buy a big chunk of insurance giant aig for more than $4 billion after the company got a huge bailout during the u.s. financial crisis. that is not the only bargain that china is picking up from u.s. taxpayers lately. stuart varney on this morning, head of "varney & company" on fox business network. good morning, stuart. good to see you. >> good morning, martha. martha: they're gobbling up our assets in many ways . what do you make of it. >> they are spending the money they have got buying american assets cheap. you mentioned aig. a chinese company is paying $4 billion for aig's plane leasing business. aig remember got $189 billion as a bailout fund that was back in september of 2008. the taxpayers still are the largest shareholder in aig. we sold the plane leasing business to china cheap. second item, a 123 batteries, americans taxpayers gave that company $249 million in grants and another 250 million in tax s
'm with the world journal. could you address growing chinese assertiveness in south china sea and east china sea? and given china just announced they will intercept the ship's that go into territorial waters. so are you going to participate in upcoming defense talks with chinese? and what message do you want to tell them? thank you. >> well, thank you for that question. of course the issues that are being placed today in a south china sea and other areas in the north and central, east asia, i think are quite complicated because of the nature of the territorial disputes, some of them historic, some of them now driven by the need for access to resources in those areas, and that's i think to some degree has motivated some of the activities that you see, seeing there. the u.s. position as you know is that we don't take sides on territorial disputes. there's many of those around the globe, not just in the south china sea. but we do want them resolve peacefully, without coercion. and that we call on all the parties there, including the chinese, to ensure that as they approach these problems that they
. last, but certainly not least, i think you could see the new leadership team in china come more aggressive reform program than people are expecting. >> all right. michael, good to have you. >> thank you so much. >> michael jones of riverfront. >> financials looking to continue their upward momentum from yesterday when both bank of america and citi hit new 52-week highs. independent research analyst meredith whitney has turned bullish on financials, too. whitney citing several factors including her view that banks are more than adequately capitalized. and guys, the weakest position banks from the crisis are now more than adequately capitalized, thus what they earn going forward, whatever that is, will now be theirs to employ with far greater discretion than has been the case in the past. that's the crux of her note. >> it needs to be listened to. i think we make a little bit much of meredith whitney, to be frank. it's been a controversial call on municipal bonds a couple of years ago that has not been proven correct. she might argue with that, but i think that's in the facts. you
